My Middle-cat has a car named Pepe. Pepe has been buried under 2 feet of snow for the better part of a week.

This morning, the Big-cat dug out Pepe so that the Middle-Cat could go for a drive.

I think that if it snows any more, the Big-Cat can put a roof over Pepe's parking spot...the walls are already in place.

A Good Start

I'd like to give a shout-out to my readers who have fulfilled my request for Fancy Feast. This is a picture of the response so far. Special props to Michelle P and Doreen H for the many cans of F.F. That should keep me happy 'til Friday.

It was another tough, tough day here at the Kaatz household. My Middle-Cat's mom and Michelle tried to give me treats and I ate them up and even played with them for awhile. What was I thinking??? Don't despair -- I gave them a good hissing when I realized what I was doing.

Big-Cat's now off work for the holidays. Just what I need... another human hanging out at home. Please, I implore you, send more Fancy Feast. If I can't sleep all day, I might as well pack on some holiday pounds.

I hate snow days

Some cats love them. But I hate them. My Big-Cat, Middle-Cat and my Middle-Cat's mom have been hanging around waaaaay too much for my liking these last couple of days.

How's a girl-cat supposed to get her beauty sleep with all this ruckus?

I can't even go outside to escape.

Help me! Send Fancy Feast!

It's about time!!!

Wheelchair racer Chantal Petitclerc, who won five gold medals and set three world records at the Beijing Paralympics, was named winner of the 2008 Lou Marsh Award on Tuesday.

The award, decided by a panel of sports editors, reporters and broadcasters, is given annually to Canada's most outstanding athlete by the Toronto Star. It is named after a former Toronto Star sports editor.

The 38-year-old from Montreal finished ahead of six other finalists: figure skater Jeffrey Buttle, wrestler Carol Huynh, equestrian Eric Lamaze, baseball's Justin Morneau, tennis star Daniel Nestor and triathlete Simon Whitfield.

Petitclerc has won 14 gold medals over a span of five Paralympic Games and has another five silver and two bronze. She hasn't lost in 10 consecutive Paralympic races dating back to 2004 in Athens.

In Beijing, she often beat competitors who were 16 years younger.

Big Cats

The Big Cats just got home from a week in Hawaii (and one day in Seattle). They tell me the weather was much nicer in Hawaii than in Seattle or Vancouver.

While they were in Hawaii, they were mooned by a goat (see attached).

The Big Cats got home really late Sunday night (or rather, really early Monday morning) so they haven't even unpacked their suff from the trip.

I hope when they do unpack, there will be something in there for me.
